    Re: Michelle Obama surprises Oscars by presenting Best Picture award

    I'm new here and I must admit I'm somewhat shocked. I thought this was a site for real debate. I can't believe that these Obama haters have some much of nothing to complain about then to gripe about Mrs. Obama appearing on a tv show. Why would you even care. It is sooooooo petty. Other presidents and First Ladies have done it. Why quibble over such minior issues. It not degrading of the position it was done tastefully and it didn't cost much if anything to do. WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL??????? Can the Obama haters find nothing else to witch about?

    She should have said no. She has nothing to do with the Hollywood crowd and she had no place presenting that award, or any award.

    Did Laura Bush present the Best Picture award?

    You can have your opinion but the reason they asked her to do it is she is tight with the Hollywood crowd. That never would have happened with a Republican first lady. You can't argue that point.
    So when Laura Bush was asked to do a TV show she was also wrong to accept? Or is it just Michelle Obama who has to live up to unwritten/un-realistic rules made by republicans.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    A far more innocent time. First Ladies were hardly noticeable and Jessica Lang was still really hawt.

    It might also shock you that a lot of people who make comments like this and other blatantly racist remarks are actually black themselves. Michelle Obaa's appearance is one of their favorite derisions. I speak from experience.

    Welcome chase.

    Threads like this are like train wrecks. We are all guilty to a certain extent of not being able to turn our heads.

    There is productive debate to be had on this site. You will just have to recognize who has the intellectual ability to engage. Never respond directly to nonsense if you can avoid it.

    Re: Michelle Obama surprises Oscars by presenting Best Picture award

    Thanks for the welcome 66. I probably won't respond to too much just yet. I'm still trying to get a feel for the flow here. I. Still trying to figure out who is who and where people stand. I don't want to just jump in and start throwing my opinions out there blindly. But I just couldn't hold back anymore after reading some of the post here. It's so frivolous. The women did nothing distastefully. She is and will always be a very classy lady and she handled/handles herself well. If her last name wasn't Obama they would have nothing to say about it.

    Thanks again.

    Nah, it's not a shock to those who know all about them Both. Especially with Chicago. Although many don't really reflect racism. Rather most are about them being Hypocrites.

    But you do not deny those type of comments are being made by black folks.

    You are quite welcome Chase.

    I meant what I said about black folks mostly making those types of comments. I personally do not get it myself. Are these proud people ashamed of their race? It is perplexing but real nonetheless.


    One day I will tell how I know, but trust me on this.
